On top of being better, americans are extremely humble about it.

Seriously though... when you compare the antiquated US standards to the much more up-to-date EU standards, it's a complete shame that we can't pull our head out of our ass.

I looked into why the cool dynamic tail lights available on the Golf R in other countries cannot be sold in the US... For one, the dynamic turn signal exists in a gray area (that ford exploits with the sequential signals on the mustang), but the other is that the brake lights in the US are based on size. In Europe it's based on actual light output. It's just too american for our standards to be based on size instead of actual light output... So obsessed with SIZE.

The Mustang's sequential looked like construction work zone lights.. with halogen bulbs making them look incredibly cheap not to forget the horrible fit and finish of the panels.

The RS6 Avant is nice, but it is a bit too big. I wish they could do an RS4 / S4 Avant size.. with MT.

It is just different...I think you are reading way too much into it. Euro's is not any better or worse, just a different way of doing things. I suppose to a light designer, that would be an issue, but to the average joe, meh, not a big deal.

Humility definitely has its place. Like so many other things, there is a time and a place for it. Some Americans are great at it, others, not so much, but you can say the same for every other country.
